JOHN LEE NINJA-TO
These Ninja swords are close to original. They have a less curved and shortened blade to wear in a normal sheath (Saya). Fighters used this fact as an element of surprise because it gave them the ability to draw the shorter (not viewable) blade considerably faster. Most of the swords offered as Ninja swords today are made without historical example and have their source only in Hollywood’s fantasy.
The sharpened blade is forged out of 9260 carbon spring steel. According to weight the blade includes a fuller (Bo-Hi)
Details: Blade length to Tsuba: approx. 57 cm
Total length without sheath: approx. 88 cm
Total length with sheath: approx. 106.5 cm
Weight without sheath: approx. 980g
This sword will be delivered with a seal, which guarantees the originality. You?ll get this sword wrapped in a cloth bag.
